The scale is just a scale and shouldn't need colouring. You can do what
you want by having a blue 'upstream' feature and a green 'gene' feature
in the first row.

I don't know Bio::Graphics well enough, but am interested in the answer...

Presumably you just change the glyph type of your binding sites to
something that shows direction, like 'processed_transcript'. Someone
else may have a more appropriate suggestion.
However, do your binding sites really have a direction? That is, do you
really know which strand your transcription factor bound to?
