Post a photo of the flower when it opens. And another of the entire plant.

I think velvet leaf, also. You will know if the leaf surface is very soft and velvetty.

Jim, here's an interesting tidbit:
'In an outdoor emergency, the soft leaves can be used as a substitute for toilet paper'.
From my comments on velvet leaf in the DB.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

The flowers were described as like a sunflower. Or was that just the bud description?

That was my description of the bud , The plant has not bloomed it still looks the same
If I had to describe the blooms in the photo links ,Simple marigold or a leaf covered Coreopsis is how they look to me
