Looks like a leafy gall, gall can be cause by various pathogens.
one pathogen that often associated with leafy galls on tobacco and tomatoes is Rhodococcus fascians it can attack various plant , since tobacco and brugmansia are in the same family, that could really be related to Rhodococcus fascians infection. Better remove the affected part, I think.

I was cutting back my Brugmansia yesterday and found the same thing and wondered what it was. I did cut it off. Really strange looking.

@Billythekid did you remove it and did you ever have any further problems after removing the leafy gall?

Last time I saw that it was because I used too much extra nitrogen.

Hey there! Sorry that I am just now getting to this message. Grad school has had me preoccupied.

I ended up leaving it on the tree and it looks like it died in situ.

Here is the whole plant for anyone that is interested Smiling
That highest tear of flowers stands at about 9 ft tall.

I wonder if it was from the grass fertilizer that the groundskeepers use... I think its roots have crossed under the wall and have invaded the grassy area.

earlier this spring. You can imagine how good the whole block smelled.

I trimmed quite a bit of new growth off to keep it under control, but you can see how much deeper the green has gotten. It has been blooming non-stop for the past month.

I do not have small hands, BTW. It is hard to appreciate how yuge these blooms actually were.
