    Maybe something in the golden samphire (Limbarda) genus. Possible the Limbarda crithmoides subsp. longifolia(?). Check out it out and see if you have a match. You could also compare the flowers involucre (the green bracts in the back of the flower) to the closeup images from the second included link. Best wishes!
