Set color to steelblue?

I already set the first color value to steelblue, but it keeps telling me to set it that way? Can someone help with this

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header{
  background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);
  background-color: #f3753b;

}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>

        <div class="primary-content">

Hi Destiny Simmons

You're doing great.

The only problem is the question asks for the gradient to go from bottom to top. You've got it going the other way. Just fix up to bottom to be to top and you're good to go.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:
