In your area, I would probably wait until fall unless you can ensure that it receives plenty of water while it re-establishes its roots, which will be important during very warm weather in summer. When you move it, make sure to get as much of the root system as possible and surrounding soil. It will also help to prune it back some so the plant can put its energy into the roots rather than foliage.
