Hi,Osteospermum stopped flowering since a month and leaves are drooping

California, United States Us

Hi,

Osteospermum stopped flowering since a month and leaves are drooping.
Have tried watering on and off.
Fertilized with Osmocote in May and Sept.

Overall the leaves are greener, but some get yellowed over a period of time (a week or two).
Am I over watering? or does it need more water?

Thanks.

Given that by and large they are annuals I would expect them to be dying now...

this one is Osteospermum : Spider Purple
[ photo link : https://picasaweb.google.com/109078447128567897634/Osteospermum?authkey=Gv1sRgCIfdyJLdqYqzpwE ]

It has had 2 flowering cycles, in April when I bought the plant and in June. So is it done for the season?

and also I found a mushroom growing near the root crown. Is it a symptom of root fungus/root disease ?
What is the remedy?
Thanks.
