# Get Product Attribute into Order Confirmation Email

I'm currently attempting to override the following file in order to add the color attribute to the Order Confirmation Email:

vendor/magento/module-sales/view/frontend/templates/email/items/order/default.phtml


Under the "sku" line, I've created an additional line to display the color of the product (this is the only change I've made to the file):

<p class="product-name"><?= $block->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?></p>
<p class="sku"><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('SKU') ?>: <?= $block->escapeHtml($block->getSku($_item)) ?></p> <p class="color"><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ __('Color') ?>: <?=$block->escapeHtml($block->getColor($_item)) ?></p>


Having tested the email, I can see the label "Color" being output, However it's not returning the actual value.

 $productcolor =$_item->getProduct()->getAttributeText('color');

Make sure that \$_item is instance of Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Item
