I have grown spring onions as perennials for a couple of years now, i trim the tops and outer leaves off to eat and leave them growing. the plants were originally from the supermarket shelf i put the cut bottom root section in water for a month or so before transplanting outside. they just keep growing.

Most onions are grown annually. Too much messing around I would imagine to regrow. Otherwise cut the roots off and put in water and they will grow. Google it.
