Goultenianum is a crossing between Paph.callosum x Paph. curtisii and the hybrid Vintner’s Treasure, is Paph. Kowloon x Paph. callosum. Paph. Kowloon = Paph. New Era x Paph. purpuratum. New Era = Paph. barbatum x Paph. sukhakulii. So if added up, 6 lady slipper orchid species, Paph. venustum, Paph. sukhakulii, Paph. callosum, Paph. curtisii, Paph. purpuratum and Paph. barbatum has been used to create Paphiopedilum Calgary Ken.
