My submit button is placed with the form but not working?

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong or missing, unless this is a bug.

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

    <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="pruple"> Purple </option>
        <option value="blue"> Blue </option>
        <option value="green"> Green </option>
        <option value="orange"> Orange </option>
        <button type="submit"> Place Order" </button>
    </form>
  </body>
</html>

Hi there! You're doing terrific, but you forgot one tiny thing. You started your <select> menu and added all the options, but you forgot to close your select menu. Somewhere there needs to be a </select>.

I think you can get it with this hint, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
