I have a round lawn only about 12 ft in diameter - and want to put a mini tree with small roots or a nice shrub in the middle of it - any suggestions ?

Almost like asking how longs a piece of string! hundreds to choose from, so really needs narrowing down to what you might be looking for evergreen or deciduous, flowering or foliage interest

And remember you will not be able to have the grass growing right up to the trunk of the tree.
