What plants or flowers can be grown under a cedar tree? Right now, there is just bare dirt because the grass will not grow there.

You can grow an azaleas or any other acid loving plant.
What grew wild under the Western Red Cedars in Western Washington was a thing called False Lily of the Valley. It's perennial, a network of underground roots, and heartshaped leaves with tiny white flowers. I sure miss it. The cedar foliage shedding into the dirt gives off a toxin that prevents other things from growing.
Anything, in containers or raised beds.
Rhododendrons, Azalias, just to name a couple. Google acid-loving plants and shrubs.
