Yellow perennials for partial shade?

Wondering if you have any recommendations for yellow flowering perennials which would be OK in partial shade in my new bed.
It's at the southern facing end of my north facing garden and so gets sun in summer for about 4 hours. The soil is clay but I've conditioned it quite a lot so the top 30 cm or so are quite nice and loose.
I've planted ferns and a mahonia winter sun in there so far.
I'm looking for tall, whispy and ground cover. White at a push but definitely looking for yellow.
It self seeds but is easy to pull out if it appears in the wrong place.
Edited to add, Helianthus "Lemon Queen" (amongst others), for height and yellow in the late Summer/Autumn.
I realised that after looking at the "Lantern" photos !
I have Crocosmia George Davidson in a shadier spot than you describe and it flowers quite well. Lovely rich buttery yellow although not wispy
Miscanthus sinensis does well in shade and Gold Bar has creamy yellow bands on its foliage. Another lovely golden grass is Hakonechloa Aureola
East facing, top of a hill clay-loam, cultivated for centuries (7 years by me). Birmingham
Very pretty and lovely green foliage
