Creating a Submit button

I'm having trouble placing the submit button tag. I keep getting an error telling me to place it within the form. What step am I missing?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>

      <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
        <option value="blue">Blue</option>
        <option value="green">Green</option>
        <option value="orange">Orange</option>
         <button type="submit>Place Order</button>

You are missing an end quote on "submit"

Added the end quote and I'm still having the same issue.

Check your select tag

your select tag needs to be closed before the final option tag.
