It rotted.
It was a nice colour but even in a 50/50 mix of compost and perlite in a clay pot it rotted outdoors over winter (uk zone 9, kent -with a dryer than normal winter).
I've never had a problem, with angelina or lemon ball but this falls in to the category of sedums that suffer stem rot if not kept very dry over winter.
