I find this plant growing wild all over empty lots and in alleys in Tempe, AZ. It has a kind of powdery coating that rubs off to reveal a more green color underneath. I believe it smells like sage but some others don’t agree. When cut it has a very sticky golden sap.

    Maybe something in the sunflower family, perhaps the brittlebush (Encelia farinosa)(?). check it out and see if you have a match. Click on the image from the link below to enlarge. Best wishes!
