Bouea burmanica, or Bouea macrophylla, is native to North Sumatra, Malaysia and West Java. It is only hardy to about 55F so it may die down or at least suffer some leaf damage when temperatures drop lower than that. If you have a protected place to plant this tree, perhaps where radiated heat will warm the air around the tree, it will be fine. Otherwise, it's probably not a good choice for your landscape.
