Pseudofumaria lutea--Yellow Corydalis
This sweet little ground cover grows all over the Asian section at the UC Botanical Garden, but according to Wikipedia, it is native to the Alps of Italy and Switzerland. It looks great and has a long bloom season (from now into fall) so I hope it stays. It seems to like the cool, moist shade that is so abundant near the stream in that section. But according to online info, it will grow in the sun; maybe if provided with lots of water. Several web photos show it growing out of rocks or rock walls, so I guess it likes those situations as well. No need to hurry to see this one. It will be blooming for months.
