jQuery - Target the Children of an Element Using jQuery

having issue with jquery .children ( )
from my code on how i understand children () function its supposed to turn the button orange. the button is the children to right-well but instead the text in the button is the one colored. i thought the text is like the grandchild of right-well.
why is the children the button text and not the button itself?

Your code so far

  $(document).ready(function() {
    $("#target1").css("color", "red");
    $("#target1").prop("disabled", true);
    $("#target1").parent().css("background-color", "red");
$("#right-well").children().css("color", "orange")

<!-- Only change code above this line -->

<div class="container-fluid">
  <h3 class="text-primary text-center">jQuery Playground</h3>
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-xs-6">
      <div class="well" id="left-well">
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target1">#target1</button>
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target2">#target2</button>
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target3">#target3</button>
    <div class="col-xs-6">
      <div class="well" id="right-well">
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target4">#target4</button>
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target5">#target5</button>
        <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target6">#target6</button>

Link to the challenge:

In this line: $("#right-well").children().css("color", "orange") , try changing "color" to "background-color" or "border-color" and see what happens.

Why do you think it does that?
