    I'm looking for help identifying this sunflower-looking plant that's currently blooming in my yard.
    The plants are ~4-5 feet tall.
    I live on the Connecticut shoreline.
    Is it native?
    (Any chance it's ox-eye "false" sunflower, Heliopsis helianthoides?)
    Thanks!

    Yes, but it isn't the true wild specie. Looks like some kind of hybrid with all those extra petals.

    Here's how the true specie looks.
