I recently stumbled across this massive shrub with these large yellow daisy-like flowers. The flower is about 5 inches wide and has a a very sweet scent...almost a mixture of gardenia and honey. Most of the leaves have 3 points to them. It is also, obviously, flowering in November, though I live in a subtropical climate. I would like to find out what it is-- any suggestions?

Maybe Mexican Sunflower - Tithonia diversifolia
