Shrug! It does look like a helianthus for sure, though.

May I ask, what's the source of your garden soil? Was it the existing soil or did you buy/import/obtain some and from where?
Knowing the source may help narrow down the ID for the seeds in the soil.

Example: I imported some compost from a friend's yard and it contained Pokeweed, crab grass, and other weeds, but it also gave me plenty of Four O'clocks, Cosmos and Zinnia plants.

Your plants (and weeds) look very healthy. Thumbs up

I use a no-till system. I have a very diverse garden. I make my own compost. Last spring I did get some from the county though. I have a large wild garden in the front of my house. There are many rain gardens in our neighborhood. I mulched last fall with shredded leaves from a neighbor.
