I bought a swamp milkweed plant at my gardening festival yesterday. Will this plant do well in a container?

I don't know why it would not grow in a container, they are not that aggressive of a spreader if that is the concern.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

My swamp milkweed plants were small and had no knew growth when they were in containers. When I planted them in the ground they grew so fast and had flowers and then produced pods.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing with joy.
Psalm 96:11-12
