Hi all,

I grew a black eyed susan "VINE" outside in a pot all summer and decided I would try to overwinter it instead of letting a heavy frost kill it. It's been in my living room now for about a month and still blooming and making new shoots. I don't quite know what to do with it. Should I prune it back or leave it alone? Thanks for any info.

I believe that this plant has to die down / go dormant to rejuvenate for the next season. See these articles. They may be of some help:
