The ideal time to divide tree lilies is in fall, but if your friend has already divided them and passed some on to you, I would go ahead and plant them in the ground as soon as possible. You will be tempted to water frequently because it's hot, but remember not to overdo; too much water will rot the bulbs. Also, lily bulbs get nourishment from the leaves; if they had not already withered and turned brown, I would not cut the stem off. Here is more:
