I've never studied Latin, so probably I'm asking a trivial question. I'm wondering if the phrase
"collige, virgo, rosas"
can be expressed correctly in the following short form

Sure. Collige, virgo, rosas means "gather roses, maiden", collige rosas means "gather roses".
Collige is the active 2nd person singular present imperative of colligo 'to gather'.
Rosas is the accusative plural of rosa 'rose'; accusative because it's the direct object of collige.
Virgo is the vocative singular of virgo 'maiden'; vocative because the maiden is being addressed by the speaker.
