Saw this today in a garden covering a lovely Acer. Any ideas what it is called?

It's a great shrub, don't plant near a patio as the berries drop and stain. I love this plant despite that though, and have 3 in the garden @outdawes

Great plant. I have both this dark form and a lime green one in the garden

A neighbour has one of these and calls it a pheasant bush as pheasants love the berries😊
