The top hummingbird-attracting native in my garden has been lonicera sempervirens. Also good are clethra and liatris. The surprise was seeing a hummer feeding on tithonia (only a semi-native, I realize).

In terms of a hummingbird garden, not necessarily of natives, the old-fashioned red canna attracts more hummers than almost anything. I also see them on salvia "Coral Nymph," most lantana, and some gladioli.
