Some of the flowering plants that thrive in acid soils include Hydrangea, Iris kaempferi, Erica, Lewisia, Tropaeolum (flame flower), Dierama (wandflower), Lupin, Calceolaria, Primula, Narcissus, Lilium speciosum, Muscari, Gentian, Andromeda (Bog Rosemary), Begonia and Shortia. I've also had good results with vinca minor and ajuga as groundcovers in my acidic soil.
