Default Canon SD890 IS

I just recently purchased a Canon SD890 IS, and I am having problems shooting under the Foliage Scene Mode; almost all the images come out blurry. Does anyone know why, or does anyone know the manual options for that feature so i can just get a faster shutter speed?

Thanks

Just a guess (Canon's never really specified what goes into the various modes), but in Camera M try high ISO and Flash Off. You should probably set a custom white balance, especially if you're in heavy canopy. And play with the various My Colour (all Vivid, or Vivid Green, or Custom Colour) options.
