Yes, or causing them not to grow at all. Acid rain has been shown to stunt or prevent growth in many forms of plant life. It has also been shown to permanently damage root structures. It can also damage the protective layer on plant’s leaves, rendering them more vulnerable to disease. Germination and reproduction is also inhibited by acid rain.
By increasing the acidity of soils, acid rains – even if they don’t kill plants outright – eventually create conditions that favor acid-loving plants over other kinds. The pH balance of soil is a crucial variable in determining what can and can’t grow in it, so, yes, acid rain causes plants to grow differently.
