flashing question for new windows that don't have a nailing flange

I installed new double hung windows, but they don't have a nailing flange. I flashed the rough opening, but I'm wondering what to do about the area between the rough opening and the jamb.

Do I just fill the void with low expansion foam and put my exterior trim on?

Or do I put in foam, then flash over the void, then put my trim on?

or... something else?

These sound like replacement windows in the wrong place.
Who sold these to you and said they were new construction windows?
Post some photos.
