Default Unknown Yellow Flower

Anyone know what this is? I'm from southern NJ, I saved it from a construction site. It gets to be 5 feet tall, was growing on a hill side in thick green clay. It's blooming now and has been for a few weeks. It reminds me of Cup Plant or something in that family but I haven't been able to find it. The flower looks slightly different too.

I believe it is either Bidens connata or Bidens frondosa.

No the flowers to those two don't seem to "open," but you have ID'd another weed I have out in the yard. Thank you.

My best guess is either Coreopsis tripteris or Helianthus occidentalis. I am leaning toward the latter, due to its lighter colored central disks.

It looks a lot like my mystery plant.

I think it might be a perennial sunflower.

It is always difficult to identify a plant from a photograph. I still believe you have a Bidens species. Check and see if your plant is Bidens coronata.

Looks like Bidens to me. Which one... I don't know. I have a different species out my way.
