Without seeing the plant I can only guess that it is a trailing annual and might be verbena, lantana, bacopa, Summer Snapdragon (Angelonia augustifolia), lobelia, Wishbone Flower (Torenia fournieri), or Nemesia. All have small purple flowers and all attract hummingbirds. Hope one of these is the plant in question.
