Yes, you can take them with you. You can either dig them up and plant them in containers, or you can dig them up, let them dry, then store them in a cool place till you are ready to plant. Try to replant within a year. Make sure they have afternoon shade in their new environment. If they are Pacific Coast natives, they do best in the Western environment .
