multiplying onion

Is there a multiplying perenial onion that multiplies at the base?
i tryed a few of the topset onions/shallots and they would fall over into the pathes of my garden.
It would be nice if the onions were at least as big around as a quarter or even bigger.

for years Mama had a row of an "onion" she called multiplying onions. They didn't really form a bulb but had pretty big green tops & stayed there year round. She was in southern west Tn so usually winter wasn't too bad but it would freeze hard a few times every winter. Does anyone know what this is? I have tried many times to find some but nothing looks like these did. If I remember correctly they produced a purpleish blossom on top of the onion blades.

White multipliers and potato onions will both make a quarter-size bulb but they won't keep doing that forever. They have to be harvested and planted again. Otherwise there is nothing that fills your desires.

If you mean walking onions, I have 4 varieties. They are Catawissa, Heritage Sweet, Red Egyptian, and True Egyptian. Any single variety could be sent for about $2.
