How to add a histogram to just the x-axis?

Hi! I’m wondering how I add a histogram to just the x-axis.

Surprisingly (to me) this adds a histogram to the y-axis:

import holoviews as hv
import vega_datasets

iris =

hv.Points(iris[["sepalLength", "sepalWidth"]]).hist("sepalLength")

As does this:

pts = hv.Points(iris[["sepalLength", "sepalWidth"]])
xhist = hv.operation.histogram(pts, dimension="sepalLength")
pts << xhist

How do I attach a histogram to just the x-axis without also having a histogram on the y-axis?

I also wonder how this can be done.
The only documentation I could find about hv.AdjointLayout() is:

I noticed there’s 3 positions in a AdjointLayout: ‘main’, ‘right’ and ‘top’.
So I wonder if there’s a way to point out specifically which plot should go where in the AdjointLayout.

So AdjointLayout is kind of unfortunate in its design, the easiest way to do this is to adjoin an Empty element in the position on the right:

scatter = hv.Scatter(np.random.rand(100, 2))

scatter << hv.Empty() << scatter.hist(adjoin=False)
