Well if you want to get really technical Rex, the african "Swahala wood" two toned color comes from the desert and has never been in water. So what would you call that?
The term bogwood originaly meant wood taken from peat bogs. This wood can be thousands of years old and perfectly preserved. Most of this is in Europe. Scotland has some famous bogs. However, true "bogwood" rarely makes its way to the USA.
Wood is also pulled from swamps, which is like a bog, but different. Various people on the internet pull Cypress wood from swamps in Florida, Louisiana, and so forth. People like aquariumdriftwood and Florida driftwood. But this is not true bogwood in the true sense, and it does float. A few years ago I bought a big box of wood from aquariumdriftwood.com. It was sent wrapped in wet newspaper to keep it wet, but I let it sit around for a couple weeks and it got all dried out. It floated and never sank. I soaked some of it for 3 months and it still never sank. I finaly stuck it in my outdoor garden.
