Thinking about adding some plants that will add some early spring color, since most of my color comes during the late spring into summer with my lilies. I do have a couple different azaleas but looking for more non shrub colors. Any ideas?

If you're meaning perennials I'd suggest heuchera for a colorful display year round. There's also pulmonaria that has colorful, small blooms and interesting foliage

Catmint starts in spring and goes all until frost. Baptisa is another good one. They have short ones out now. Irises, columbine, clematis.
