HORMONES
f o r a M o r e B e a u t i f u l
Landscape
As kids, we all learned that plants
need air, water and sunlight to grow.
However, the science behind
growing a beautiful landscape goes
much deeper than that.
Like humans, plants produce hormones
that influence their growth.
These naturally occurring hormones
regulate things such as how fast a plant
grows or when it releases fruit.
Hormones also affect the colors
of leaves and flowers.
We can often tell if a plant is struggling
due to a lack of hormones just
by looking at it.
When your plants fail to thrive, you can
use special hormones to revive them.
These hormones are available naturally
in plants or in synthetic form.
Knowing how they work lets you see
the benefits they have for your lawn
and garden.
Common Types
of Plant Hormones
There are five main classes of plant hormones.
Abscisic
acid
Cytokinins Auxins Gibberellins Ethylene
Each of these classes of hormones
perform essential roles that influence the
growth of plants and their appearance.
For instance, abscisic acid prevents seeds
from germinating until the conditions are
just right.
In Arizona, this hormone sometimes kicks
in during drought conditions, and it can
cause the plant to stop growing to
preve...
Auxins and cytokinins work with each
other to influence the ways that
a plant grows.
For most plants, these hormones should
be at proportionate amounts.
When one outweighs the other,
different effects occur.
For example, higher levels of auxins
influence the direction in which plants
grow and generate more roots.
High cytokinins can cause plants to
become bushier and produce more shoots.
Fertilizers often contain a specific mix
of these plant hormones to achieve the
desired effect for the type of plants
in y...
Gibberellins have a tremendous impact
upon plant growth. They help seeds start
to grow after they germinate.
The right levels of this
hormone can also cause
plants to flower faster.
Alternatively, the level of this
hormone can be adjusted
to slow plant growth such as
when a bush begins to get
too tall.

Mid-season, you may also see signs that
your plant needs help making it through
hot temperatures or drought conditions.
A plant in trouble is often evident by
visible symptoms such as shriveling
leaves or stunted growth.
Extremely elongated stems with few
shoots are another sign that your plants
need treatment.
The use of hormones requires an
understanding of the complex ways they
influence how bushes and other plants grow.
