Answer: High temperatures and high humidity can cause the symptoms you describe. I think I would plant them in containers to facilitate good drainage (you can sink the containers into the ground) and mulch over the soil to slow water evaporation and reduce humidity in their general vicinity. See if their behavior changes over the next few weeks. If not, you may want to put them elsewhere in the garden where air circulation keeps humidity down.
Best wishes with your lilies.
