I am wondering what the name of the flowering bush is that I have in my backyard. See picture.

Hi kastlhsd, Welcome!

The growth habit of those lovely shrubs reminds me a bit of Flowering Quince but it's impossible to give an exact ID without closer photos of the leaves and flowers and also a general idea of what part of the country/world those lovely shrubs are growing.

It reminds me of a trumpet vine.

Yes, we need closer pictures and location to even guess. From what I can see, it could be a trumpet vine or a bougainvillea.

Oh, Bougainvillea! That's an even better guess. (Emphasis on 'guess') Smiling
