California conditions are not my forte, but the variegated Euonymus (note spelling) are typically variegated throughout the leaf presentation.

Alternatively, the variegated Privet species Ligustrum x vicaryi often presents with terminal golden growth. Take a look a comparative information...

I agree its a Golden Privet, at the top of the most annoying plant list. Smiling

We need clearer close up images...especially of the edge of the leaves

My vote goes to Euonymus sp.

The leaves of which have finely serrated margins.......which I believe I can see in your pic NCRAS.

Scroll down on 2nd link for several clear images.

In comparison Golden privet are completely smooth leaf edges.

The apparent texture of the foliage looks more like Euonymus to me.

Thank you for the replies. I made the mistake that this would be such and easy bush to identify that I went with one shot... Dummy me. Never again. I will take a close-up and post in the next day or so.

In re: most annoying plant. While researching the WWW. I read that it was not a favorite despite its ubiquitousness. And if I can be so bold/snooty? ;-), I also find this bush as a hedge to not be as desirable as others. That said, this bush it is in what I would consider an odd space. but it is uniquely beautiful due to both its color and that it has not been shaped/trimmed, at least not into a box type shape that I can tell.
Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!

Euonymus japonicus maybe 'El Dorado'
