Answer: Sorry I made you wait so long for an answer!
Neolitsea sericea is one of about 80 known species in the genus, which belongs in the Laurel family (Lauraceae).
If the few hours of sun it would receive are in the middle of the day, it may do fine in the shady area, but in your generally cloudy region, I would feel more comfortable by erring on the side of more sun than less. If you have an alternate spot that gets more sun, it will do better there.
I hope this helps!
