Form elements

Is having an aria-describedby sufficient for a form element to be considered accessible in place of a HTML label, aria-label, or aria-labelledby? Accessibility checkers tend to flag a form element as not having a proper label when it only has aria-describedby affiliated to it even though there are text around the form element. Or would the form element still require a label?
