Balfour intended to revise the temporary system but died before it could be accomplished. The Series system does not attempt to classify species under their subgenera and section as proposed in the International Rules of Botanical Nomenclature.

This classification or effort to define the relationship between the species of Rhododendron was in need of revision. A more natural classification based on wild plants proposed by Sleumer was adopted by Cullen and Chamberlain, of the Edinburgh Botanical Garden, as the basis for a complete reassessment of the genus Rhododendron.
