My black elderberry is 2 years old and are growing straight up like 9 ft stalks. How do I get it to bush out more, and can I top it? There have also been no blooms on it or berries.

I have never seen an elderberry like that. Is it black elder or black lace? I would consult the place from which you purchased it and see if it is growing properly. You will get cross pollination with a second variety. Here are some guidelines to follow.
