If you are using simple Dolomitic lime, then most plants, unless they are specifically acid loving (and even then, sparing amounts won't hurt) can benefit from it. Hydrated lime can be a bit rough on some plants, so you will need to be much more careful with this.

Here is a list of plants that highly benefit from the alkaline conditions that lime has: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/plants-for-alkaline-soil.htm
