Why are the Euphorbia leaves turning yellow and wilting ?

California, United States Us

Updated Q with Photos :

Euphorbia leaves turned yellow.

Watered thoroughly thinking that it needed more water. Now after 2-3 days more leaves have turned yellow and are wilting.
Removed the aphids with spray, still some are on in another plant, Achillea.

What is causing the leaves to turn yellow.
How to reduce the salt buildup ???

Old Q : Euphorbia leaves have turned yellow/dried around the lower part of the stems. Upper leaves are green. Aphid like bugs are on flowers.
Is the yellowing because of Aphids?

Possibly, Daisy, especially if there are huge numbers of them. A more likely candidate is lack of water, or salt buildup from too shallow watering.
