for perennials that bloom late spring - after tulips but before iris and are zone 5 hardy.

Veronica Speedwell
Violas (they are actually perennials)
Phlox
Catmint (Nepeta)
Painted Daisy Chrysanthemum
Peonies - not my fave, but some people love them. Just beware they attract ants big time. If you plant them near the house, plant mint between them and the house to deter the ants.
Dianthus Desmond
Poppies - but they might be too close to tulips for your preference
You might find a Yarrow that works too

What height and sun requirements for the area?

Thanks for you suggestions! I think I might actually planting some late blooming tulips too!

I have poppies, peoneys, columbine, violas and yarrow. However none are in bloom just yet and my tulips are done!

It's been a strange year though, everything seems to be blooming later than normal. A little sunshine would make a huge difference!
