It looks like Chrysogonum virginianum. Here is an excerpt from a nursery site:

Commonly known as Goldenstar or Green and Gold, Chrysogonum virginianum is a beautiful wildflower that is native to the eastern United States. It is one of the finest flowering ground covers for the sun or shade garden, bearing bright yellow star-shaped flowers that will lighten up even a patch of deep shade.
