If you're finding live tissue just beneath the bark of the stems and branches, your ninebark is still alive and should leaf out in the spring. It sometimes takes 2-3 years for the roots to become established so it may take that long before you see any substantial growth with your ninebark. Once it is established, you can prune it back to nearly ground level to rejuvenate it and encourage additional branching. Best wishes with your ninebark!
