Rotate xtick labels in Seaborn boxplot using Matplotlib

To rotate xtick labels in Seaborn boxplot, we can take the following steps −

  • Create data points for xticks.

  • Draw a boxplot using boxplot() method that returns the axis.

  • Now, set the xticks using set_xticks() method, pass xticks.

  • Set xticklabels and pass a list of labels and rotate them by passing rotation=45, using set_xticklabels() method.

  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import seaborn as sns
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.00, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
xticks = [1, 4, 5, 2, 3]
ax = sns.boxplot(xticks)
ax.set_xticklabels(["one", "two", "three", "four", "five"], rotation=45)
