Yes, they produce seeds and will oftentimes even re-seed themselves in ideal conditions. You can simply let the blooms fade and then cut the dried, spent blooms from the plant. Place them in a brown paper bag. When you are ready for planting next season, just gently pull the dried petals off and the seeds can be easily removed.
