Unfortunately these are the only photos I was able to get of this plant so I hope someone recognizes it. At first I thought it was Baccharis (Desert Broom) but now I don't think that's correct.

Location: Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma (San Diego, California.)
Date of Photos: January 9, 2015.

My first thought was (and I'm still leaning towards) Desert Broom, Baccharis scrothroides but I have difficulty comparing photos. That's the closest one I've found yet.

Upon further research I do believe this is Baccharis sarothroides
