Yes, you can bring the whole container inside for the winter. Aztec lilies are related to Amaryllis, the popular bulb that is forced for Christmas bloom. They can be treated as a houseplant during the winter, but cut off water when it goes dormant. Since Aztec lilies are not common in cold climates, I'm also including information on Asiatic lilies, in case that is what you have. Asiatic lilies are a little different. You can bring the pot inside, but leave it in a cool location, between 32 and 45 degrees F. Water lightly about once a month. A basement or garage should work.
