    trying to find old rambling rose

    An elderly friend of mine will be 88 years old soon. She has always talked about a rose that she used to have in her yard, many years ago. I would love to find that rose for her and get it for her birthday. She said it smelled really good and was a whitish color with deeper yellowish centers. She said it was a full rose, not the single petal type. It covered her fence, so I am assuming it was a rambler or clinber. The name she keeps telling me is or sounds like " Marsha Neal or Marshall Neal". It could be spelled totally different or even be a French word or some other language that just sounds like Marsha Neal. Does ANYONE have ANY idea as to the identity of this rose??? Thanks so very much!

    The rose is Marechal Niel, 1864, a Noistette. Grows to 4 meters, flowers double, soft yellow and fading in bright light, tea scent.

    I am sure she will love it.
