Anyone recognise this? -- sedum with pink tips

Took a couple of cuttings of this a couple of years ago in Mallorca. We never expected it to live in the UK climate but it grew very well and placing it in a greenhouse over winter has kept it in reasonable condition.This year though, it has started to look a little unwell.

We don't even know what it is, let alone how to properly look after it.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks!

Sedum pachyphyllum, native to Oaxaca, Mexico, forms low subshrubs of chubby "jelly-bean" glaucous blue-green leaves with rose-red tips when grown in bright light. Clusters of bright yellow star-shaped flowers. Excellent color accent for rock gardens. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Are they in pots? Maybe they need some fertilizer or repotting.

It looks really healthy. Sometimes it start to look little bit leggy, you can cut them and put it into a soil. They will get roots in no time. With more sun and less water, it will get more red.
