Mandevilla plant hanging basket
I forgot to bring in my Mandevilla plant hanging basket. The cold has killed the plant. Will it bloom again next year? I guess it is too late to bring it in. Thanks.

You should bring the plant indoors anyway, in case it is still alive. Its chances for survival depend on how cold the temperatures actually got, and whether the roots were killed.
Water the plant sparingly, making sure the soil surface gets dry between waterings, and keep it in a warm place with light. If the plant is still alive, you will see new growth emerging eventually. At that point, you can prune away the damaged parts.
