Hi Tinypepa, Welcome!

I'm not too good at identifying plants, but I'm going to make a guess because it looks like everlasting to me. Guessing maybe Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea)

That is so unique, I don't think I've ever seen a white flower like that before. Thankfully someone else had a suggestion for you because I wouldn't be able to help much.
