hi there. this is called Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica). It grows really well in the shade and will transplant easily (incase you want to move it later). Cut it down and it will grow back too. The berries are really nice for winter interest!

I love Nandina. They keep their leaves all year, don't crowd out other plants, beautiful color all year and red berries to keep the birds happy. A few years ago, the fellow who helps me in the yard sometimes, decided it needed to be trimmed up and cut all the lower branches. When winter came, the snow on the top branches weighed it down and the limbs weren't strong enough to hold the plant up. Fortunately, this plant is so forgiving. I have let the bottom fill in again and we're doing okay! I wish I knew the name of my variety, because it is as beautiful as the maples in my yard in the Fall.

Make sure you read about how to trim/prune Nandina. It's an old gardeners favorite, but if trimmed incorrectly, it will become unattractive.
