Seen in the Santa Monica Mountains of Southern California. Many thanks to SP member Tarol, who identified this plant. Spanish Broom (Spartium junceum) is not a native species in Southern California but rather native to the Mediterranean region in southern Europe, southwest Asia, and northwest Africa. It has been introduced into many other areas, e.g. Southern California, where it is regarded as rather invasive.
