I've create a module to add a custom attribute to my categories,the field shows on my category pages but it doesn't save the values?

Working on Magento ver. 2.2.2

Can anyone advise why this isn't working.

/app/code/NameSpace/CategoryAttributes/Setup/InstallData.php

<?php 

// File: Namespace/Module/Setup/InstallData.php

use Magento\Framework\Setup\{
    ModuleContextInterface,
    ModuleDataSetupInterface,
    InstallDataInterface
};

use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetup;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetupFactory;

class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
{
    private $eavSetupFactory;

    public function __construct(EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory) {
        $this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;
    }

    public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
    {
        $eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
        $eavSetup->addAttribute(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY, 'ss_category_color', [
            'type'          => 'varchar',
            'label'         => 'Category Color',
            'input'         => 'text',
            'source'        => '',
            'visible'       => true,
            'default'       => '',
            'required'      => false,
            'user_defined'  => false,
            'global'        => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
            'group'         => 'General Information',
        ]);
    }
}

Try this

public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
    {
        /** @var EavSetup $eavSetup */
        $eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
        $eavSetup->addAttribute(
            \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY, 
            'ss_category_color', 
            [
                'type'          => 'varchar',
                'label'         => 'Category Color',
                'input'         => 'text',
                'visible'       => true,
                'required'      => false,
                'user_defined'  => false,
                'global'        => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
                'group'         => 'General Information'
