Perhaps use my demo. In the middle of the loop is where you would stick a call to copyfile() or movefile().

The function you supply would movefile()
Watch out for duplicate file names! Watch out for bugs while you get the code working...
If I were developing the code, I would refrain from moving the files unless I had good reason. I would either copy the files or I would create links to the files.

sourcedir = fullfile(pwd, 'flowers');
destdir = fullfile(pwd, 'flowerCategory');
if ~exist(destdir,'dir')
[success, message, messageid] = mkdir(destdir);
if ~success
error(messageid, sprintf('Failed to create directory "%s" because "%s"', destdir, message) );
%find the potential source directories
dinfo = dir( fullfile(sourcedir, 'category*') );
%remove everything that is not a directory
dinfo(~[dinfo.isdir]) = [];
for J = 1 : length(dinfo) %for each source directory
thisdir = fullfile(sourcedir, dinfo(J).name);
%find potential files in directory
finfo = dir( thisdir );
%get rid of the things that are not files
finfo([finfo.isdir]) = [];
for K = 1 : length(finfo) %for each file in directory
thisfile = fullfile(thisdir, finfo(K).name );
%make a copy of it
copyfile(thisfile, destdir);
