Do you know what this flower is?

Sis says this plant is a volunteer in her garden this year & we don’t know what it is. A very large bush, probably 6+ feet tall and nearly that across. It’s loaded with this bright red/orange flowers, the undersides of which are a golden color. As a cut flower it is doing excellently. We used one as a model to paint.
If anyone recognizes this plant would you please email me with the name of it? Email: dorleska at tds.net
Thanks 🙂

A PS: Georgayne in Texas wrote to say, “The flower you pictured appears to be a tithonia or commonly known as the Mexican sunflower.” So the mystery is solved. Thank you, Georgayne!
