From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Dextrorsal \Dex*tror"sal\, Dextrorse \Dex"trorse'\, adjective [L. dextrorsum, contr. fr. dextrovorsum, dextroversum, toward the right side; dexter right + versus, vorsus, p. p. of vertere, vortere, to turn.] (Botany) Turning from the left to the right, in the ascending line, as in the spiral inclination of the stem of the common morning-glory; as, dextrorse vines.

Note: At present scientists predicate dextrorse or sinistrorse quality of the plant regarded objectively; formerly the plant was regarded subjectively, and what is now called dextrorse was then considered sinistrorse.

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

dextrorse

adjective

1: spiraling upward from left to right; "dextrorse vines" [syn: {dextrorse}, {dextrorsal}]
