Overwintering Ornamental Millet

If we dig up our ornamental millet and bring them in the house for the winter, will they make it for replanting next year?

The ornamental millet was bred and has been used as an annual in the garden.  You will have much better results if you start with fresh seed or new transplants next season.   If you like a challenge, try storing the plants in a cool location like a cool corner of the basement, for the winter.  Water occasionally to prevent the roots from drying out, keep your fingers crossed and see what happens.
