It's a dahlia, they originate from Mexico and aren't hardy in the UK. They are usually dug up after the first frost has blackened the stems, you can store the tubers somewhere frost free over winter. They won't need light. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=592

It could be that they have been stored somewhere cool prior to shipping to force dormancy on it.

Looks like the scaredy cat plant, Coleus canina. Usually planted to keep cats away because they don't like the smell of it.
