Lillies usually are not propagated by cuttings rather the bulbs often produce offsets or it the flowers are allowed to set seed these can be collected and starrted. My Lillium candidum, Madonna or Easter lilie, has produced offsets each year even here one zone up from where its supposed to survive, but its usually 3 to 4 years before those offsets start to produce flowers.

Lilies are grown from a bulb, taking a small portion of a bulb may yield a similar lily but size and maturity would take a few years. Almost like taking a clove of garlic from a bulb in order to grow more garlic. Gee, I hope this helps you.
