It's a perennial, behaves like an annual outdoors in the UK. I've seen huge long-established plants in GHs

It was an odd season. After June we didn't have much of a summer here. I waited and waited for some seeds to ripen, it took ages .

They don't have a long life. You might keep it alive for a bit longer but it won't become more beautiful.

Storing Seeds Over Winter

2 or 3 weeks after the petals have gone will not have produced mature seeds. I think they're soft because they aren't ripe.

Seeds need to mature on the plant all seeds not just sunflowers. Drying off is done when the seeds are mature. Maturity is when pods open or seeds come loose in the seed head. 

Is this a poisonous plant?

Leycesteria formosa. No idea re poisonous but black seeds are not a sign of poisonous. Otherwise where would we be with Blackcurrants and Blueberries
