I find it interesting that the Fuchsia Society lists 'June Bride' and 'Display' as the same plants but with different names.
Update October 2013:
This is an impressive Fuchsia. It has bloomed a few times once summer started cooling off. Getting down into the 30's so far for the low in October, doesn't bother it in the least. I have been keeping an eye on the fruits the plant is producing to get seeds from to try and have noticed no frost damage or wilting or anything. I have mulched with pine needles and plan to put leaves on top of that. I am hopeful she will come back in the spring.

June Bride is a vigorous upright bush which is listed by the Northwest Fuchsia Society as one of the hardier varieties of winter hardy fuchsias. So I expect to see this one blooming this winter in zone 9b, just like my other fuchsias. It is also listed by FindThatFuchsia, but the hybridizer and date is not there. The printed tag describes it as:
Sepals - Rose
Corolla - Rose
I like the flare on the "skirt," like Voltaire and Netallia have.
