Yes, Little William does come back every year. While this Dahlia may only last for a season, the tubers themselves are hardy and will return every year, but only if cared for properly. To ensure that your Little William dahlia tubers come back year after year, you should plant them in well-drained soil and water them regularly.

After the blooms have faded, it is important to cut back the stems and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Once the foliage has turned brown and withered away, the tubers can be lifted and stored in a cool, dry place until it is time to plant them again the following spring.

Do you live in an area with a warmer climate, such as USDA zone 8 or higher? Then you can just leave the tubers in the ground after you cut back the stems and remove the foliage.
