what are some good tropical plants to attract humming birds?

double points if you can give me some plants to keep mosquitoes away as well. (minus points if its citronella)

Where are you? It must be somewhere relatively warm, but how much rainfall do you get?

I just had an encounter out back -- I was putting a few things out to dry to take advantage of the weather, and I heard the familiar "Chip" of an Anna's. She came down within a foot of my face to get a better look. She then went to feed off of some succulents I have - an aloe with red tubular flowers and a dudleya. Pretty amazing up close like that.
