I want to label each three bars as p1, p2 and p3 for all at the base as the pic attached.. i appreciate any help someone can provide.

you are right.. but i'll manopolate with the colors later.. so it will not be fixed as it now.

Here's how to locate the center of each grouped bar and label them.
Starting in Matlab R2019B, the center of each bar is stored in
h = bar(___);
h.XEndPoints % x centers
h.YEndPoints % y endpoints
Prior to Matlab R2019B, you can use an undocumented property "XOffset". This was developed and tested in r2019a.
xCnt are the bar centers.
% Generate grouped bar plot
figure()
v = randi(20,12,3);
h = bar(v,.8);
% Get group centers
xCnt = get(h(1),'XData') + cell2mat(get(h,'XOffset')); % XOffset is undocumented!
% Create Tick Labels
xLab = repmat({'p1','p2','p3'},1,numel(xCnt)/3);
% Set individual ticks
set(gca, 'XTick', sort(xCnt(:)), 'XTickLabel', xLab)
Alternatively, you could rotate the x tick labels
set(gca, 'XTick', sort(xCnt(:)), 'XTickLabel', xLab, 'xticklabelrotation', 90)
% Or use xtickangle(): https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/xtickangle.html
The best solution would be to use a legend
legend(h,{'p1','p2','p3'}) Ali Ali on 20 May 2019

Hi Ali,
Here is a simple solution to your problem:
A= randi([15, 25], 13, 3); % Insert your data here
H = bar(A); shg
H(1).FaceColor='g';
H(2).FaceColor='r';
H(3).FaceColor='b';
Good luck.

Sulaymon Eshkabilov i think you did not get my point.. anyway thank you for your help.
