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.

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
