I created a simple barlegend:

barlegend = BarLegend[{Hue[#] &, {0, .7}}] 

enter image description here

However, when I tried placing this legend next to any plot, the legend appears differently. It seems that when placed in a plot, my custom range [0, 0.7] is scaled to [0,1] as input for the Hue function. How could I make the legend appear in the same way as it is created? Thank you.

barlegend = BarLegend[{Hue[#] &, {0, .7}}] 

Plot[t + 10, {t, 0, 2}, PlotLegends -> barlegend, 
 Epilog -> Text["Any plot", {.5, 11}]]

enter image description here

You can use barlegend with Legended

Legended[Plot[t + 10, {t, 0, 2}, Epilog -> Text["Any plot", {.5, 11}]], barlegend]

enter image description here

or add the option ColorFunctionScaling -> False to Plot:

Plot[t + 10, {t, 0, 2}, PlotLegends -> barlegend, 
 ColorFunctionScaling -> False, Epilog -> Text["Any plot", {.5, 11}]]
