There are various ways. You can simply add the legend after you plot everything like,
legend({'essential','less essential','most important'})
or
you can add it while plotting inside the loop like
for P=1:K
% body
plot(.....,'bo',,'DisplayName','essential');
end
%other loops
and finally,
lgd = legend('show');
