I have this tree in my garden in the suburbs of Bangkok but I have only seen leaves and never flowers. Somebody is able to help me with an ID?

Please can you add more pics to this thread.
Pic to show the whole tree and how the leaves are arranged on the branches...opposite or alternate.
Just 2 leaves on a white sheet does not give any idea of scale...are they tiny or enormous.

I have not more than these, sorry. The tree was growing against another one: the MILLINGTONIA HORTENSIS.

Many thanks Mistifarang.....that is a huge help.
You new pics show that the leaves are opposite each other on the branch and gives a good idea of the size...14cm on new pic.

I can even see the fallen white flowers from your Millingtonia Hortensis.
Unfortunately I cannot help you with an id but hopefully with the new clear pics someone here may recognise your mystery plant.

Millingtonia hortensis produces suckers. Why can this unidentified plant not be one of the suckers with an immature leaf arrangement?

Millingtonia hortensis does produce suckers which are used to propagate new trees...apparently in India the trees do not produce seed.

I did concider suckers earlier but the leaves shown are nothing like the Millingtonia hortensis leaves...which are alternate and compound (bi-imparipinnate)

I have struggled to find the leaf shape for suckers of this tree.
The nearest I found was this...which shows leaves identical to adult tree.

Do I see compound leaves starting at the top of one of them? Or are my eyes deceiving me?

Maybe; I thought those were branches.
