Color saturation in clustered column chart

How can I get something like this below (different hues of one color) in a clustered column chart.

The month (x-axis) order would change every month.  Next month, 05 will be at the end and 06 in the front.

But the color hue order would not change.  

Regardless of the x-axis order, the graph will always look like this.

See attached.

 

Notes

- your source data is not suitable for Power BI. It needs to be unpivoted (and the year needs to be added).

- I added a measure to produce the gradient 

- there is a bug in the current Power BI Desktop that ignores the instruction not to concatenate X axis labels. It is caused by the new format pane. Hopefully they can fix that soon.

 

 

Thank you.  I am not able to open the attached file.  I have Jan 2021 Desktop Power BI version.
