If your not opposed to some small shrubs there are some azaelas that come in a variety of colors, but for specifically yellow try some day lillies. There are a few that tolerate part to full shade.

    Winter aconite, early daffodils, crocuses, trout lily. A lot of the early spring bulbs will do fine under deciduous trees. Azaleas come in screaming orange, but they need part shade, not full. White flowers are also great for brightening up shady corners, try Trillium grandiflorum and Astilbe, and speckled Toad Lily for fall…

    That is a trciky question as there are not too many common yellow shade plants. The best would be English Primrose as it comes in yellow but is just for cool weather(In SoCal; Nov thru Spring). Clivia comes in yellow now but the plants are pricey.

    Goos luck 🙂

    The yellow woodland poppy(Stylophorum dyphyllum) is the perfect flower to plant in shade and for your zone. I love this plant it blooms in spring and for most of the summer here. I’m a zone 6.This is a native plant and is found in rich woodland areas. It is also one of my favorite wildflowers to photograph. They self seed easily so be prepared to share with friends!! GROW NATIVE!!!!!

    Pansies and Violas do well in shade. As do foxglove. Although with foxglove, the yellows have a tendency to become white and purple after a few years. Also – don’t rule out Impatiens – look for some specialty varietys – different species. Consider “African Blondie” or “African Orchids” or “Mango Tango.” (Burpee.com) Also consider Begonias.

    The yellow will compliment the purples and blues from your hostas – if you let them bloom.
