Most garden plants do well in a neutral pH (6.0 - 7.5) Exceptions are those that love acidity such as azaleas and blueberries, and those that prefer alkaline soils such as cacti and lilac.

Dianthus, Phlox, Celosia, Lavendula and Fescue prefer soil pH levels in the 6.0-7.5 range. Cherry trees are not at all particular but will do well in neutral to slightly acidic soils, as well.
