Maybe Musa 'Ice Cream' (Blue Java) is what you would like. Although the leaves are solid gree I think, only the P-stem and petioles have different color.

Dunno, I don't have either, Musella nor Ice Cream.
Look in the wiki. There are quite nicely shot pictures.

Jazz, are you after a plant that has blueish leaves or do you already have one and want to know what it could be?

If you are after one, Try looking for Ensete Glaucum ( sometimes known as Snow Banana) They have a blueish hue to them. Ebay is usually a good place to look for seeds.

Hope that helps

M. itenerans may be a good choice as well.
Musella lasiocarpa really looks blue when grown beside greener musa.

It's not a Musa but my Ensete superbum in the yard looks blueish when compared to the other Bananas.

I believe the Ensete glaucum is called 'snow banana' by some. Here's a pic of min. It didn't get to be as full as normal this year. I've had this one for 3-4 years now. Now that it's blooming,I'll need to find a replacement.
