I'm in Ohio. Looking to move a smaller version of the one shown. I am brand new to this. I'm getting it's going to be beautiful, so id like to make sure I don't kill it when I move it.

Thank you!

It's an Asiatic or Oriental Lily that's getting ready to bloom. Asiatics usually don't have a scent while Orientals do. Best time to move it will be after it's done blooming. Plant at around the same depth it is now.

That's an okay time, but the better time is at the end of the summer into the fall, when the stalk has died back naturally. Far less stress on the plant, and planting a bulb (rather than a growing plant) is so much easier, too.
