I have had good luck with Penstemon plants attracting Hummingbirds in my own garden!
There are several purple varieties.

Hummingbirds do not feel comfortable flying close to the ground. When you mention “small” plants, do you mean a hanging basket? To attract wildlife, look to plants that are native in your area. These are the plants that local fauna know are safe to consume.

The flower I was looking for is Torenia It may not attract the Hummers, but it is a beautiful cone shaped flower that looks very similar to Canterbury Bells. Thanks for all of the input.
Grace and peace!
