Could it be a Bougainvillea that has been trimmed as a shrub?

It looks like a Bougainvillea to me too. I've seen them grow that way in south-western Europe.

Bougainvillea I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree They are all blooming nicely now. You will see them shaped in round balls, and all the way to sprawling naturally.

I agree, Bougainvillea; probably one of the dwarf varieties:
Bougainvillea 'Pixie Queen'
Bougainvillea 'Pink Pixie'
Bougainvillea 'Blueberry Ice'
Dwarf Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea glabra 'Helen Johnson')

There's a series of Dwarf Sunvillea Bougies that are 2-3 feet maximum height: http://suntorycollection.com/g...

I agree that it is a Bougie, but I am pretty sure it is not a Dwarf variety. From the general scale of the photograph that plant already easily tops 2-3 feet. As far as I can tell from the picture this is a Bougie that is extensively used in landscaping all over the Valley of the Sun, and it will climb up two-three story buildings, given time.
