Syrma is a yellow star of apparent magnitude 4.08 and spectral class F7 III about 70 light years from Earth. This star has 1.52 times the mass of the Sun, with a projected rotational velocity of 14.8 km s−1. It is radiating 8.6 times the luminosity of the Sun from its outer atmosphere at an effective temperature of 6,282 K. The radius is about 2.5 times that of the Sun.
- The name Syrma is from the Arabic (سرما (تطريز sirmā "train" (of a garment).
- In China, 亢宿 (Kàng Xiù), meaning Neck, refers to an asterism consisting of this star, κ Virginis, κ Virginis and λ Virginis. Consequently, ι Virginis itself is known as 亢宿二 (Kàngsuèr, English: the Second Star of Neck.)
