Don't know why not. You just won't have flowers. I would leave the green on them at least and stuff them in the ground to feed the corms when you arrive. but even if you only cut them short and bag them up, they should be fine. Can you leave yours in the ground all winter? So you don't normally store them out of the ground?
Annuals live like perennials here in this zone. My petunias bloom the most Fall - Spring. So I left the bulbs in ground, Ditto when I lived in SoCal coast, they would send there runners all over the yard!
Amazing. And wonderful. I have to take up glads (which I am giving up on this year - they simply don't grow for me very well), dahlias and begonias so they won't freeze. Peonies and lilies seem pretty freeze resistant. Good luck. I would just plunk them back in the ground whenever you get to where you are going. Even out of the ground for months won't kill them. Unless they dry up totally, so keep them on the cool side.
