Overwintering Potted mums

I have three potted mums and was wondering if I can keep them in the pots over the winter? I live in northern Illinois.

You can leave them in the pots but need to bring them inside. Trim down, and put them in a dark place. Better yet plant them in the yard as soon as possible. Trim down and cover with mulch or a big pile of leaves. Mine come back each spring and I think they are better off being planted. I live in Ma. and it gets pretty cold here!
