It may be a variegated viburnum (V. tinus ‘Variegatum’) which should be evergreen in your zone 7. To be sure what it is, I would wait and see what the flowers and/or berries look like for a positive ID.

It looks like someone has been trimming it, probably because they can get up to 12 feet tall and wide if not pruned. Instructions for pruning are included below. You can transplant in spring or fall, see tips below.

My next guess would be a variegated lacecap hydrangea, but they don't require much pruning.
