Can anyone tell me what kind of bush this is?
Thank you, Jan

Looks like a variegated Euonymus. If so, obviously planted coast-to-coast ... American landscaping has no regional uniqueness!

Hmm.......it doesn't look variegated to me nor does it look like euonymus. Looks more like dwarf yeddo hawthorn, Rhaphiolepis umbellata. A pretty standard landscape plant in CA.

My first impression was of Golden Euonymus (Euonymus japonicus 'Aureo-marginatus') that has reverted in parts.

A closeup of leaf and stem, including leaf arrangement would probably seal the deal. Euonymus has opposite leaves; rhaphiolepis has alternate.
