Purshia tridentata

Medium-sized, heavily branching shrub; 1-2m tall. Leaves simple, alternate; 3-lobed; underside woolly; 1-2cm long. Flowers solitary, born all along the stem; often around 25 stamens; 5-petaled, yellow. Often confused with sagebrush, this is non-aromatic but is also found in a variety of elevations in ponderosa pine forests and in shrub-steppe rangelands.
