It's a wise gardener who leans to use both annuals and perenni^ to gain the utmost in color from his garden. Each has its niche — and special characteristics. No Califcmia garden should be witboat Ddpbinium, Penste- moa, Shasta Daisy, TVansvaal Daisy or Primrote. No gardener has really earned the labd until he has tried many other lovdy perennials: Cofaimbine, Phlox. Sweet WHUam, or Bleeding Heart Ihe challenge in their growing lies not in the culture which is easy, but in putting Perennials to proper use. Depending on die variety, they may be fit into either the fateground or baekgrounL spotted in Uie border or squeezed into pocketsize beds; spOM over a retaining wall or hung in pots; featured in beds of their own or sale by side with annuals: uaed as an edging or as a nick garden specialty.

I cttned acres within the Point Reyes National Seashore Park ; were announced Tuesday by the ; owner of Lake Ranch. A. W. Sweet, Coos Bay, Ore., said be planned to sell 55 forty- acre parcels on the ranch, located at the southern tip of the national parte in Marin County. "It appears it is fiorgotten," Sweet said. "We don't owe it to the government to hold it any longer." Park Superintendent Edward J. Kurtz described the plan as "disastrous." "It's one of the best sections of the seashore," he said. Sweet said he would withhold from public sale two large lakes and a coastal strip, where a seal rookery is located offshore. Tho ranch once was the object of a controversy involving a proposal to trade forest lands in the Oregon ptiUic domain for the Sweet property. Hie trade fell tiumigb. The 1962 congressional act which estabUshed the boundaries of the Point Reyes Project held that aU the land within it was subject to ccodemnation proceedtags. Sweet, who values the land at about $6 million, said this mi^t be a drawback in his plans and could deter some prospective buyers. "We still owe money agamst it," he said. "Our famity doesn't iiave resources to hold it." Coownen with Sweet, a lumber investor and banker, are his two brothers, • sister and txo diildren of • deceased sister.
