Hi, me again. :) I think I accidentally found your sunflower. Could it be Helianthus atrorubens "Monarch"? I was looking up something for me and a picture like yours jumped off the page.

it's not atrorubens as I have it already. Atrorubens has a shade of purple centre.

this one has a green center.
