I have a lovery ruby red Weigela. I think camellias have a short flowering time, usually late winter/early Spring  then there's a bare plant all year.

What do you want to do? Put stones down or enrich your ground to grow plants in?

That's a fantastic Lupin, how long has it been there, I find after about four years they deteriorate a bit. 

Dwarf Helianthus (sunflowers)-which is the lowest growing?

I don't know about that one, I am growing Teddy Bear which is also suppose to be short, 

they are only seedlings at the moment so will wait and see. 

Reading up on them they vary from 40cms to 1.5mts.! 

I have seen these for sale I'm Morrisons in pots, so I would think if you kept it in a pot it would, as anything will in pots, stay small. If given the right conditions it will grow tall.

I've got one similar it's Salvia coccinea, but as Dove says there as so many.

Are these a bunch of aquilegia seedlings?

Transplant them around the garden, they don't like much messing about so don't bother to try potting them up, they are quite tough,

Direct sowing of dahlia and other seeds

I wouldn't try direct sowing of dahlias, start them off in pots and plant out when they are bigger, think it's a bit late now, they will keep for next March.  Just my opinion, that's what I'd do but it's up to you.
