Helianthus of some kind? It came from neighbor's yard.

Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani) is one possibility. They bloom late summer, early fall.

Helianthus would be a good guess, if the leaves are arrange in pairs and opposing each other. (I can't tell if they are.) But not Helianthus maximilliani, which has ascending petals and long and narrow leaves. The pics in the data base by MotherRaphaela and StaticAsh are not H. maximilliani in my opinion.

I think maybe one of the 'woodland sunflowers'
Two varieties listed in the database, but I think there's more varieties than that at my house....
