If you move your lilies now you will interrupt the blooming process and the foliage may die down, which may cause them not to bloom again next year. It will be best to wait until fall after the tops are killed by frost and the bulbs are dormant. Otherwise, you risk killing the plants and the bulbs, too. Wish I had better news for you!
