YT=cellstr(datetime(2020,1:12,1,'Format','MMMyy')); % cellstr array of MMMyy
hSP=stackedplot(YT.','DisplayLabels',YT); % stacked plot using y label strings

I do see that stackedplot doesn't allow one to use ylabel, though. TMW seems to have locked it down pretty tight as for what one can/can't do...in first blush couldn't get at the underlying axes handles and the real kicker is can't use hold in order to put another axis on top. I hadn't tried text but suspect it'll not manage either for that part as there's no set of x,y coordinates to get to.
