Another Weed

This is Coulterella capitata--a native I found growing in some sand dunes near La Paz a few years ago. Surprisingly, it is in the Sunflower family. It has a strong odor/fragrance when you touch it--kind of a medicinal smell--unlike any other. I'm trying to propagate it and it looks like at least one cutting is going to make it.
