Does a Mandavilla have seeds and if so where are they found and what do they look like? Also, I thought they were an annual but I see some internet conversation about bringing them in for the winter. If you do that will they live on and on.

Mandevillias form a tuber.They do form seed pods in the fall& yours should be starting to get some soon.it will look kinda like a green bean& the seeds will be fluffy. You'll want to bring it indoors BEFORE your frost.you can treat it as a house plant for the winter.Or keep it in temps 45-50 and above and not over 70 in bright filtered light with 1/4 c water once a month.It will be like semi dormant and can then move out after freezeing temps are gone.when growing as a house plant.....you can actually get blooms during the winter,just don't let your plant be near heat vents or drafts.they drop a few leaves over wintering proably a humidity thing being its a tropical vine.oh& most of the seeds form on the lower portion of the plant.
