The other day I was chopping down some stuff in my front yard and I think I have a round leaved Mexican sunflower that grew from seed.

I have nothing else to say about it really, just thought it was cool and different haha. Here is a picture.

I planted some tithonia in heavy mulch which came from chipped bamboo culms and leaves. The tithonia responded by having rounded leaves like this and never thrived. Ordinarily the plants grow so very well the difference was stark. So, perhaps there is some allelopathy from other plants or soil conditions causing this.
