No, not Anaphalis.

It looks like a white Butterfly weed.

I agree with Jennifer, looks like Asclepias (Milkweed) to me too but I don't know which species.

Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) . There are at least two cultivars with white flowers, or it could just be a white flowered individual of the species.
