Big Yellow Flowers

On my visit to Florida in June.... (yes I have let this go.... for a month), I saw some big yellow flowers that looked much like sunflowers.

But they did not grow on regular plants, nope these were growing on a tree. These flowers were way over my head and this was the best photo... I could get of the whole tree. It was a cloudy overcast (rainy) day and the sun was already getting low in the sky.

If I lived this far south I would have several of these in my yard....

edit-I did a little research on this plant and it may become invasive and spread in the yard. It is called the Mexican or Bolivian or Honduran Sunflower tree.

Holey cow?
What are they?
Probably would grow here in Houston. Are you sure these were the tree's flowers?
