I have done it, and it does work.  Especially if plants are put in 
too late to get a good root system, the brick or rock can prevent 
frost heaving.  Not the same situation as a building or highway, for 
with a little rhizome there is plenty of expansion space for frozen 
soil around the plant.  The frost has someplace else to go.  It's not 
a myth, and I do it regularly.
