Desert Shrub fluourescent green "flowers"

I live in the desert southwest and thought I had all of the plants around here memorized. I was surprised to find 4-5 of these shrubs along a roadside a couple of weeks ago, blooming in the blistering heat. The flowers are actually tiny and white, the pods under them bright chartreuse.

Any ideas? Tried the google searches I could think of with no luck.

Pretty ... and rare because it is REALLY picky about soil conditions.
