trying again with more photos - this plant grows in or around the dunes near monterey bay (i believe it's a native, though who knows).
Plant is about 15" high, likes full sun, very little water, sandy soil.

Reminds me of Senecio. Maybe something like Senecio flaccidus.

thank u growin!
i'm pretty sure this is Senecio flaccidus Less. var. douglasii
(and not Senecio flaccidus Less. var. monoensis)
-Senecio flaccidus- member of the daisy family and genus Senecio also known as Threadleaf Groundsel (and Bush Senecio, Creek Senecio, Shrubby Butterweed, Comb Butterweed, Smooth Threadleaf Ragwort, Mono Ragwort, Douglas Ragwort, Douglas Groundsel, Sand Wash Groundsel, Felty Groundsel, Old Man, Yerba Cana, Squawweed or Cenicillo) is a native of the southwestern Great Plains of North America.

That's a safe bet since var monoensis doesn't occur in Monterey county
